◆ Analysis of major media and market experts <strong>
As the news of Tesla’s Bitcoin (BTC) investment became known, Bitcoin broke through all existing resistance lines in one day and surpassed the previous high of $44,000. Many experts predict that the bitcoin price will continue to rise due to this news. In addition, there is a positive opinion that major U.S. institutions that have studied blockchain technology have recently begun to pay attention to cryptocurrency itself, and can expect to expand the base of institutional investors.
① Mohamed L. Erian, chief economic adviser of global insurance company Allianz, said, “The news of Tesla’s purchase of bitcoin is good news for investors.” “The news of Tesla’s purchase of bitcoin will change the game rules of investors,” said Erian, an economic adviser. “Elon Musk’s bitcoin investment will give legality to the recognition of its legal currency status.”
② Forex Live, a media specialized in the foreign exchange market, predicted that “Tesla will use bitcoin as a payment method in the near future,” and “in the future, some cash will be invested in alternative assets such as digital assets and gold as well as cryptocurrency.”
③ Guido Molinari, an executive of Prism Group, a block chain consulting firm, diagnosed that “major US institutions are more interested in cryptocurrency itself than blockchain technology itself,” through a contribution to CoinDesk.
④ In this regard, he said, “From 2015 to 2016, financial institutions tended to use strategies focused on technology development. At the time, consortiums such as R3 and Coda protocol development are one of the evidence. However, since last year, more institutions directly invest in cryptocurrency, and companies’ interest is shifting to cryptocurrency itself rather than blockchain technology infrastructure.”
⑤ OKEx investment analyst Ryu said, “Bitcoin is recovering from the uptrend,” and “BTC can go beyond 40,000 dollars to 42,000 dollars.” “The Musk rally over $6,000 last week helped recover the bullish trend,” he explained. “The rate of financing for permanent swaps following the trend of quarterly futures surcharges continued to rise during the week,” he said. “In the morning of the 4th, after a short-term adjustment, it peaked at 0.19%.” He added, “The current financing rate is running around 0.06%. This means that there is room for bitcoin to continue its upward trend.”
⑥ Mike McGlon, chief strategist of Bloomberg Intelligence, said, “We will bottom out before Bitcoin reaches 50,000 dollars. When it reaches 50,000 dollars, the market value of BTC will reach 1 trillion dollars.” In the 2021 cryptocurrency outlook report released in January, he predicted that “the bitcoin price will soon reach $50,000 due to a decrease in supply and an influx of institutional investors.”
⑦ Galaxy Digital’s CEO Mike Novogratz predicts that Bitcoin will continue to rally over the next 22 months as big banks get on the bitcoin market. He stressed that the bitcoin adaptation cycle of large institutions is still in its infancy. In addition, he predicted, “The recent bull market is different from the speculative market that individual investors raised in 2017. Within a year, Bitcoin will reach $50,000, which is 10% of the gold market cap.”
① Cryptocurrency analyst Rakesh Upadhier said, “If bitcoin buyers get out of the overhead resistance area in the range of 40,000 to 41,959.63 dollars, they will be able to move toward 50,000 dollars.” If the price falls below $38,000, the 20-day exponential moving average line (EMA: 35,386 dollar level) and the 50-day simple moving average line (SMA, 32,840 dollar level) could be threatened.If the decline continues after that, the price will reach $28,850. It can fall,” he diagnosed.
① Coinnis special analyst’JIn’s Crypto’ said, “Bitcoin maintains a price range below the $40,000 section where major downside pressures are concentrated. Currently, the upside momentum of bitcoin is weakening and is moving in a sideways section. Bitcoin. The shorter the retention period, the higher the risk,” he said. “Bitcoin continues to adjust and volatility is declining. Currently, the $38,000 line is getting closer to the 30- and 60-day moving average line. It is highly likely that the bitcoin sideways will continue in the short term,” he said. Explained.
② Cryptocurrency analyst Michael van des Pope predicted that “After Bitcoin hits the highest, there may be an adjustment close to 40% from the high.”
◆Comprehensive Analysis of Bitcoin Market Price <Strengthening>
With the purchase effect of Tesla reaching the $47,000 mark at once, the Bitcoin daily price (see Figure 7) reached the basic target for triangular convergence (second technical target: $46,494) set out last Thursday. The bitcoin price on the day is almost not pushed back from the previous day’s high price even though it goes through the sale process, and is seeking an additional increase.
Technically, even if the buying trend is strong, it may decline to test the support at the top of the Bollinger Band during the intraday ($43,097-$43,719, see Figure 7), which would be a good buy time for investors who failed to buy in the previous day’s surge. Of course, if the rebound breaks through the previous high (direction 1), further increases are expected, but since the basic target of the triangular convergence pattern is achieved, resistance around $50,000 is expected.From this period, altcoins including Ethereum A breakthrough is expected.
Therefore, although it is bullish now, it is highly likely that the market price declines to confirm the low and then rises again. This is because today is the February 9th settlement date for Bitcoin and Ethereum options on the DRBT exchange. 1) As a result of the simulation as of 14:00, on the same day, it was expected to be settled at around $43,500, which is lower than the current market price. 2) With only a few hours left, the call option sales volume is maintained at every strike price of $44,000 or more.
In this case, it is possible to induce a decline even after the settlement time to preserve profits from the water position for the next day. (Refer to Figure 8) Of course, these forces also have limitations in market price control, so if the market price rises sharply like now, you will suffer big losses and participate in the upward trend, so the intensity of the rise will increase.
The price of Binance BTC/USDT, which was calculated by the institute’s quant program, is $43,719 (pink line). The current market price has remained strong beyond both the market price of the day and the previous day’s high price, so it is a burdensome position to buy a new one, so after watching the aforementioned point ($43,097-$43,719) or at least near the top of the Bollinger Band on the day if the price is strong After confirming a strong rebound, try to buy in installments.
What is important at this time is whether or not altcoins, including Ethereum, have attempted to rise. Since only bitcoin has risen so far, the time for the market price to be transferred to altcoins is approaching, so we can expect to lead to profits by maintaining the proportion of coins held without going back and forth about not making profits.
